PARK HISTORY

Point Woronzof was named by Lt. Joseph Whidbey, a member of a 1794 expedition, after the Russian ambassador Count Simon Romanovitch Woronzow.

In the late 1960’s, the Nordic Ski Club members received permission from the airport to lay out and use a trail in the area until a runway was constructed. Proposals in the following two decades to develop the area further as a recreation area and then skeet shooting site were denied by the airport due to air traffic and FAA regulations.

Reservations: contact the Anchorage Parks and Recreation Department at 343-4355. The Anchorage Park Foundation is not a department of the Municipality of Anchorage, and cannot process reservations!
